Sonic Youth – Daydream Nation

What our staff has to say: “I’m coming out of a busy week, and when times get hectic, my listening depends on the albums that I could listen to a million times and they’d never get stale. This one was in constant rotation. There isn’t a wasted second here. A certified game-changer of a record. Beautiful, terrifying, and exhilarating all at once.” – Hannah

Daydream Nation was Sonic Youth’s sixth full-length, their first double-LP, and their last for an indie label before signing with Geffen.

Widely considered to be their watershed moment, the album catapulted them into the mainstream and proved that indie bands could enjoy wider commercial success without compromising their artistic vision.

More recently, Daydream Nation has been recognized as a classic of its era: Pitchfork ranked it #1 on their “100 Greatest Albums of the 1980s”; Spin listed it at #13 on their “125 Best Albums of 1985-2010”. Daydream Nation was one of 50 recordings chosen by the Library of Congress to be added to the National Recording Registry in 2006 and it was voted “One of the Greatest Albums of All Time” by Rolling Stone.

This edition of Daydream Nation (CD/2xLP) is released on SY’s own Goofin’ Records and has been remastered under the band’s supervision.
